Star Wheel Pattern #744 from Spool Cotton #40, Modern Table Settings in Crochet.

The star wheels are made separately and then joined together, the number of wheels necessary depending on the size of cloth desired.

Materials: Clark's O.N.T. or J. & P. Coats Mercerized Crochet, Size 30, Ecru. Number of balls required depends upon size of cloth. Each motif requires 37 yards of thread. Milward's steel crochet hook No. 8.

Wheel Motif: Ch 10 and join with sl st to form ring. 1st rnd: Ch 3, 23 d c in ring. Join with sl st to 3rd st of ch 3. 2nd rnd: Ch 10, and complete a cross st as follows: Thread over twice, insert hook in 8th ch from hook, draw thread through (4 loops on hook), thread over once, skip 1 d c and insert hook in next d c, draw thread through (6 loops on hook), thread over, and draw off 2 loops at a time 5 times. * Ch 3, thread over 4 times, insert hook in next st and draw thread through (6 loops on hook), thread over, and take off 2 loops at a time twice, then thread over, skip 1 d c, insert hook in next, draw thread through (6 loops on hook), thread over, and take off 2 loops at a time 5 times. Ch 3, 1 d c in center point of the cross, thus completing the cross. Repeat from * until there are 8 cross sts around circle. Join last ch 3 with sl st to 7th ch of ch 10. 3rd rnd: 5 s c in each ch 3 loop. 4th to 7th rnds incl: 1 s c in each s c of previous rnd. 8th rnd: Ch 3, 1 d c in 1st s c, * ch 1, 1 d c in next s c, and repeat from * around. Then ch 1, and join with sl st to 3rd st of ch 3. 9th rnd: Ch 10, and complete cross st as before, skipping 2 d c between each leg of cross st and inserting hook under ch 1 loop. Ch 3 between each cross st. Skip 2 d c between each cross st. Repeat around (20 cross sts) and join last ch 3 with sl st to 7th st of ch 10.

10th rnd: Ch 5, * 1 dc in same loop, ch 3, 1 s c over next ch 3 loop, ch 3, 1 d c in top loop of next cross st, ch 2, and repeat from * to end of rnd. Join with s c in ch 5 loop. 11th rnd: Ch 6, 1 d c in same loop, * ch 4, 1 s c in next s c of previous rnd, ch 4, 1 d c in next ch 2 loop, ch 3, 1 d c in same loop, and repeat from * around, joining with sl st in 3rd st of ch 6.

After completing the necessary number of star wheels, place them on a table in position and join three points of each motif to the corresponding three points of the adjacent motif on each side. To make the small center motif between the large motifs, ch 4, join with sl st to form ring. ** Ch 15, s c at joining of 2 motifs, ch 15, s c in center ring, * ch 9, s c in point of next scallop, ch 9, s c in center ring, repeat from * once, and then repeat from ** 3 more times. This completes the small center motif that joins each group of 4 wheel motifs. Break off thread.

Ch 3, d c in center point of the cross, thus completing the cross. Repeat from * until there are 8 cross sts around the circle. Join last ch-3 with sl st to 7th st of ch-10 first made. 3rd rnd: 5 s c in each sp. 4th to 7th rnds incl: S c in each s c of previous rnd. 8th rnd: Ch 4, d c in 1st s c, * ch 1, d c in next s c, repeat from * to end of rnd. Then ch 1, and join with sl st to 3rd st of ch-4 first made. 9th rnd: Ch 10, and complete cross st as before, skipping 2 d c between each leg of cross st and inserting hook under ch-1 sp.
